Alrighty then! The playoffs are upon us. Various teams will be carefully laying t-shirts over the backs of the seats of their stadiums, in hopes of inspiring team pride and that extra umph the team might need in the upcoming battles. It has been noted before that fans in AT&T Center do not care to wear the proffered t-shirts emblazoned with GO SPURS GO with the same fervor of, say, Golden State fans (the assumption being that the GSW shirts say something about the Warriors and not the Spurs). This proves to be somewhat of a wash for the Spurs' publicity people as their hard work is disregarded in favor of jerseys with 21, 20, 50 and other beloved numbers. What's a publicity staff to do?
Fear not, Publicity Staff, I have a solution or two for you!
My first suggestion is the towels instead of t-shirts:
With one change...FIESTA Colors! I can just imagine the AT&T Center filled with swirling towels ranging from orange near the court to pink and blue/teal up near the rafters. People will wave them, oh yes, they will. Magnifico!
My other suggestion is, perhaps, pure genius.
Take the picture of all the guys frogging up in
Create bobbleheads with these expressions on them of each and every one of the Spurs wearing their jerseys in the frogging position. Collectors' items, I tell you! You might have to find a good pic of Pop to use, but I would imagine this set of bobbleheads to the greatest bobblehead collection of all time!
Actually, this might need to be available for purchase to prevent mass hysteria at fans attempting to collect them all.
Please let me know what your suggestion for giveaways would be during this year's playoff run...
